DIY Rockabilly Halter Dress | A Vintage Made Magazine Pattern

I am so happy to finally be able to share my DIY Rockabilly Halter Dress which was featured in the Vintage Made Magazine issue 1o.  Sometime last summer there was a tester call for this amazing dress and I sheepishly raised my virtual hand.  I had never made anything vintage before and wasn’t even sure this was my style, but I stilled signed up.  I love doing pattern tests because I always learn a new sewing technique and I’m usually testing something I would have never thought  ...

Frida – The Pattern Test That Almost Never Happened

My Kiera Skirt By Designer Stitch

Hi Guys!  I’m back at you with another pattern test from Designer Stitch Patterns.  This time I signed up to test the amazing Kiera Skirt.

You can read about my previous Designer Stitch Pattern test here.
